SEX & HORMONES
Hormones control many processes in our body – including sexuality and pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. This does not always work without problems – both for women and for men. This applies to illnesses that are transmitted during sex. The genital organs can also be affected by cancer, such as the breast or uterus in women and the prostate in men.
Glands & hormones
Whether saliva, tears or digestive juices: they are all produced by glands. Some glands also release hormones – special messenger substances that control important things like hunger, sexuality or sleep.
Some complaints affect women differently than men, others only affect women. Examples include menstrual cramps, cervical cancer or breast cancer, which is very rare in men.
Some health problems affect men more than women or even exclusively. Examples are benign enlargement of the prostate, prostate cancer or testicular cancer.
Sexuality & pregnancy
Questions about sexuality include contraception, pain during sex or lust. Pregnancy and childbirth are natural phases in a woman’s life. However, this does not mean that they are always problem-free.
